The federal Conservative party has lost three elections in the last seven years, and is now about to see its third leadership race in the same span. Every election cycle, the Conservative Party of Canada is forced to ask itself what kind of party it wants to be, and what its place, if any, in Canadian politics is.

In this special edition of The Andrew Lawton Show, True North’s Andrew Lawton speaks with author and former Olympian William Gairdner about conservatism’s intellectual underpinnings and its past, present, and future in Canada.

A Canadian broadcaster and columnist, Andrew serves as a journalism fellow at True North and host of The Andrew Lawton Show.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
